Fusion Energy in Extremely Simplified Terms

The natural world offers quite a significant amount of complex phenomenon, and we humans have got a pretty good job of taking advantage of as many as we can. (for better or for worse) As covered in my video on nuclear energy, we have various methods of obtaining energy. And currently, nuclear power is the […]

China Made An Artificial Star 6 Times Hotter Than The Sun

Imagine if we could replace fossil fuels with our very own stars and No, we’re not talking about solar power We’re talking about nuclear fusion and recent research is helping us get there meet the experimental advanced superconducting tokamak East for short East is a fusion reactor in China and now it can reach temperatures […]

Scientists Accidentally Discovered Quark Fusion, Could It Be the Future of Energy?

What’s ten times stronger than nuclear fusion!!? QUARK FUSION!! The particles that make up the neutrons and protons inside of atoms are known as quarks. And researchers found that when quarks bind together, energy is produced. Scientists have already been smashing together particles at the Large Hadron Collider but that’s been with hydrogen atoms, not […]

Faces of Technology Meet Dionne Hernandez Lugo

If we’re gonna have astronauts living on the Moon and Mars, you need power to be able to live in space. My name is Dr. Dionne Hernandez-Lugo and I manage a team that develops power systems for future space exploration. Kilopower is a nuclear technology. This set up here will be the actual size of […]

Nuclear Engineering & Radiological Sciences at Univ. of Michigan

KOTEK>>We are potentially holding the key to one of the major ways of addressing the need for a deeply decarbonized energy system. PIERPOINT>>I really see nuclear power as being critical to the future of the planet. It’s about my kids. It’s about making sure that they actually have a planet that’s cool enough to live […]

Nuclear: It’s All About The Atoms | Science Trek

JOAN CARTAN-HANSEN, HOST: ABOUT 20 PERCENT OF AMERICA’S ENERGY COMES FROM NUCLEAR POWER. FIND OUT HOW WE TURN ATOMS INTO ELECTRICITY. IT’S SHOCKING. (MUSIC)STUDENT 1: HEY, WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THE POWER? STUDENT 2: I DON’T KNOW. JOAN, WHAT’S WITH THE POWER? JOAN CARTAN-HANSEN, HOST: POWER? WELL, WE IN THE UNITED STATES GET ABOUT 20 […]

Nuclear: Tour EBR-1 | Science Trek

JOAN CARTAN-HANSEN, HOST: ARCO, IDAHO WAS THE FIRST CITY EVER POWERED BY NUCLEAR ENERGY. THAT’S BECAUSE SCIENTISTS AT EBR-1 PIONEERED THE WAY TO USE ATOMIC ENERGY FOR ELECTRICITY. COME SEE WHERE IT ALL HAPPENED ON SCIENCE TREK. JOAN CARTAN-HANSEN, HOST: HI I’M JOAN CARTAN-HANSEN, AND WELCOME TO EBR-1.E TREK. THIS EXPERIMENTAL BREEDER REACTOR WAS ONE […]

Nuclear Power – Dr. Helen Caldicott – Visions of the Future

Can you give me an update on Diablo? What update do you need, except to close it down? In fact, nuclear plants are shutting down faster than new ones are being built. The nuclear industry is a death industry. It’s a cancer industry. This is crazy. You are sitting on top of a nuclear weapon. […]
